PUPILS proudly displayed their heritage by coming to school in their national dress as part of a school's International Week.
The youngsters at Berrymede Junior School in Osborne Road, South Acton, put on a colourful parade around their sports field before quite literally getting a taste of other cultures by sampling food from around the world made by parents.
And children were kept captivated by tales from Somalia told by one of the parents, all on October 20.
It was part of a week of activities with a global theme. They included traditional games and art work based on different landmarks which were sent to Berrymede's partner school in Eygpt.
It was a celebration of the school's diversity, its pupils have backgrounds in 50 different countries, and a way for the children to gain a better understanding of the world around them.
International coordinator Kathryn Hill said: "The parents and the PTA were brilliant and the kids really enjoyed learning about the world.
"It gave them a greater understanding of the world, and that we share some wonderful similarities as well as the differences, which are just as important."
